leave a comment »

There has been a revival of thrash metal in the past decade with the retrothrash bands like Toxic Holocaust and Havok among others. This has also resulted in a comeback from bands including Death Angel, Nuclear Assault and more recently Exhorder.

American quartet Sacred Reich released their 5th album Awakening last month, their first album in 23 years. We spoke to frontman and bassist Phil Rind about how Awakening came together, the addition of Joey Radziwill on guitars and their upcoming tours in US and UK.

Phil Rind also shares what metal means to him and the influence of his practice of Tibetan Buddhism on Sacred Reich.

Aggressive guitar riffs, pummelling drums and growled vocals are some of the elements of death metal and they are now being replicated by Artificial Intelligence (AI). Animesh and Peter discuss Dadabots, a AI project by Berklee College of Music graduates and what it means for the future of death metal and metal in general.

The guest on this week’s show is Mallika Sundaramurthy of Brutal death metal act Abnormality. The boys speak to Mallika about her gateway into death metal, forming Abnormality and also their latest album, Sociopathic Constructs.

Mallika also shares with Animesh and Peter they story behind her collaboration with Indian death/grind act Gutslit and her thoughts ahead of the band’s upcoming European tour.

Dismember are one of my favourite death metal bands. I could not resist picking the brain of one of the bands inspired by them. Lik’s new album Carnage sounds awesome, find out more about it in my interview with the band.
